The Vancouver Canucks announced that winger Brock Boeser suffered a rib cartilage fracture and will be re-evaluated in three weeks. The team also revealed that Micheal Ferland is being shut down for the season due to recurring concussion-like symptoms.
Boeser, who suffered his injury on Feb. 8 against the Calgary Flames, has registered 16 goals and 29 assists in 56 games this season.
Ferland, meanwhile, was removed from a conditioning game with the AHL’s Utica Comets on Friday night due to concussion-like symptoms. The winger has been out since Dec. 10 and has appeared in just 14 games this season.
